Tomorrow we celebrate the birthday of a boy who is turning five and off to school! I wanted to create a school themed birthday card for him.
I always look at blog challenges for inspiration these days, so I am linking up with:
Use It Tuesday: Stick it- time to use up your sticky stuff!! We are talking stickers, tape, anything with adhesive!!
The Memory Nest: Crafty Creations #5.
And Freshly Made Sketches:
My hoarded school stickers came in handy for this one. I have had the school kit since 2008 when I started my husband's childhood album.
I used the alphabet stickers for two of the bold stripes, and the background paper is from the same kit. Triple matted to really emphasise the colours since no stamping was used on this card and I wanted it to still be interesting. I also used a chipboard "5" sticker that I have had for at least three years.
*sigh* I just realised that the patterned paper is upside down. I hope he still likes it!
Thanks for stopping by. It is a long weekend here so I am hoping to get lots of craft time in.
